    Do you think all the topics in Unit 3 will actually be tested in the final exam? Having looked at the case study, I don't think all the topics will come up. Any thoughts?

    hopefully boundaries will be low for paper 1 because most people in my class found it hard. Especially, my friends who get A* in every test found it hard

    It was harder than any other past paper. The Henry Sarah one was bad. Tbh both were correct but it depended on the interpretation of the question. I said Henry was.

    I said that Sarah was correct and that henry was incorrect because increase in competition between means that they would be cheaper

    But if the PED for the food at the cafe was elastic then lower prices would result in higher revenue therefore she can afford the higher wages.

    For sarah yes that would be correct but for henry he was also correct and I did put that she was incorrect because I was in a rush. But examiners do mark on a indictive mark scheme where there are all sorts of answers.

    also depends on the demand for the café as less demand means a little effect on price if its elastic.
